English abstract:
The effort for design and implementation of process au-
tomation systems increases with the complexity of modern
production plants. To shorten the implementation phase
we propose a conceptual approach for automated code
generation for programmable logic controllers (PLCs)
based on knowledge acquisition from standardized engi-
neering artifacts and their corresponding tool database.
Ontologies are defined for each engineering domain ar-
tifact, representing the concepts and relations specified
in the associated domain standards. An automated data
extraction and population of the domain-specific ontolo-
gies together with semi-automated mapping definitions be-
tween common engineering objects then enables a rule-
based code generator to query the ontologies. The query
results are translated afterward into PLC code by apply-
ing a rule transformation algorithm.
